The Role of the Teacher - Malibu 1971 - Dialogue 1

Jiddu Krishnamurti

" The role of the teacher - 26 March 1971 • Q: There is much talk of a spiritual revolution among young people. Do you see in this very mixed phenomenon any hope of a new flowering for civilisation or possibility of growth? • One can go into oneself at tremendous depths and find out everything. To go into oneself is the problem. Not being able to do it we ask for help. • If there were no books, no gurus, what would you do? • Q: You speak against effort, but doesn’t the growth and well-being of all sides of man demand something like hard work of one sort or another? • Why is there this cult of effort? Why have I to make effort to reach God, enlightenment or truth? • Why do we divide energy at all? • The observer only comes into being when wanting to change ‘what is’. • The state of not-knowing is intelligence."
